I am riding a bicycle solo across Africa, sleeping in the wild and conquering some of my deepest fears
In mid October I started cycling North of Cape Town in South Africa. I am originally from Dublin, Ireland but had a dream of cycling alone across the Continent. Since leaving Cape Town, I have cycled up the Western Coast, through Namibian Desert and right over to the Botswana border.
I have mostly slept in a tent with all my supplies to survive on the bicycle. Lately there have been more and more animals around the tent at night and I meet very few people day to day given how remote this part of Africa.
I had no cycling experience prior to this trip and no training...zero!
The extremity of weather, complete isolation, risks involved have all made this to be the most difficult challenge I could have imagined - Please ask anything you like...about the locals, food, the cycle, the animals, the fear, the wild camping, the burning sun, the desert...... :)
All donations made go to Ireland's Child cancer charity Aoibheann's Pink Tie who support the child and their family in their battle against cancer. Please email me through the website if interested in writing about my trip - I love bloggers :)))
Thanks so far for all the questions and votes, Given that Ive only myself for motivation out here its great having support online lol
